Step 1: Define it Talk about the meaning of loyalty with your kids and why it is a virtue. Tip Stories from _Aesop's Fables_ for younger children, or novels and movies such as _The Outsiders_ for older ones, can help teach the concept of loyalty. Step 2: Be a good example Set a good example of loyalty, for instance by standing up for your family when they are mistreated and following through on your commitments. Step 3: Use teachable moments Look for teachable moments with a moral about loyalty or disloyalty, such as when your child shows school spirit, does something patriotic, or is betrayed by a friend. Tip Reminding your child how they feel when others treat them with loyalty may help inspire them to be loyal in return. Step 4: Use slogans Repeat catchy slogans about loyalty that your kids will remember, such as, "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold." Step 5: Fine-tune Help your children fine-tune their understanding of loyalty by trying to explain that keeping some types of wrongdoing a secret is not true loyalty, but false loyalty. Did You Know?
